A connected vehicle technology company, Danlaw will demonstrate the safety applications of its latest V2X solution at ITS America in Washington DC. The demo will feature a V2X-equipped police vehicle which illustrates the importance of traffic signal preemption in emergency situations.
Danlaw with Code 3, a provider of light and sound solutions for emergency vehicles, has developed integrated V2X system for emergency and utility vehicles. The system is designed to improve safety on the road, reduce emergency response times, and save lives.
Together the companies have developed an emergency vehicle lighting module with a fully integrated V2X antenna. The antenna connects to Danlaw’s AutoLink Onboard Unit (OBU), which is integrated with Code 3’s emergency vehicle system to provide first responders with 360-degree vehicle awareness and safety insight. By simply switching on the vehicle’s emergency lights and siren, the V2X system will communicate with roadside equipment to request traffic light preemption.
This feature will temporarily stop cross-traffic so that first responder can quickly maneuver through intersections that may otherwise be congested.
